An exploration of mechanically animated surfaces that defract light. A sensor panel detects light intensity, as well as being sensitive to different light bands, thus picking up on any movement by people. Each sensor then transfers a quantitative signal to a specific the and bespoke code and chipset, to translate into movement of people walking past. Each signal corresponds to a specific rotation of the of hundreds of lenses which in turn refracts the light to create animations mimicking the movement.
